The Original Version Of Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album To Be Released Officially This Friday [Video]

The Original Version Of Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album To Be Released Officially This Friday

To celebrate Lil Wayne‘s 38th birthday and the 2-year anniversary of Tha Carter V, the original version of C5 will be released this Friday (September 25th) as a deluxe edition.

While presenting Tunechi with a 2020 McLaren 720S for an early birthday gift, Mack Maine revealed this news in the car as “Life Of Mr. Carter” played in the background.

However, we can hear one line on “Life Of Mr. Carter” that seems to have been changed (“Or to propose and get I don’t know… I don’t know” to “Or to break hearts and get your heart broken, I don’t know”), so I’m not too sure if there will be many changes from the actual OG version which leaked.

Are you happy with this news? I’m buzzing one of my favorite ever Weezy songs in “Scottie Pippen” aka “Scottie” is getting an official release!

Young Money APAA Sports Release New Commercial For 2020 NFL Season With A Voice-Over From Lil Wayne

Young Money APAA Sports have released a commercial for the new 2020 NFL season and it includes a voice-over from Lil Wayne.

“It’s time! 2020 has been a year like no other, but it’s time to get back to work and to the game they love. It’s time for the rookies to put on that NFL jersey for the first time. It’s time for some veterans to make their mark in a new city and a new uniform. It’s time for the guys who face diversity in the past, and we know something about comebacks. And it’s time for champions to chase another ring and build that legacy. And it’s time for those who are tryna get that first Super Bowl ring. We know who we are – we are Young Money, Young Mula Baby!”

You can check out the advertisement after the jump below. What are your thoughts on it? The voice-over reminds me of the “What’s G” commercial Wayne did for Gatorade back in 2009!

Drake is not shy about praising his mentor Lil Wayne on social media as he has done it numerous times in the past.

“This man believed in me after so many never called again or just didn’t see it to begin with… most selfless artist ever. Never held any of us back always pushed us forward every single night in people faces 20k packed into an arena and he had a whole set of his show dedicated to introducing us FOR YEARS… all praise and credit due to the 🐐 [GOAT]”
